06 May Santiago del Teide
A town of 9,400 inhabitants, it is located in a crossroads area of truly impressive naturalistic interests; besides being one of the points of “attack” to the Teide is also the departure of an exciting circuit that, passing through Masca and its luxuriant valleys, will take us (in a next visit) to reach up to Garachico, another magnificent example of extraordinary island naturalism.
But in and of itself Santiago del Teide already represents a decidedly interesting and rich in history, with its square in which stands the white Iglesia de San Fernando Rey with its many and remarkable historical revelations.
The height above sea level of Santiago del Teide, of about 1000 meters, does not induce to underestimate the very changeable climate, now very hot and now cloudy or even foggy, so for your visit use caution and be accompanied by a jersey! !
The history of Santiago del Teide, in addition to its strategic geographical layout, is largely enclosed in the aforementioned church where an impressive number of valuable altars and religious artifacts are collected that we would never be able to illustrate to you with a minimum of completeness but, rather , which we invite you to visit in person, also for the strong impact, as well as spiritual, cultural and historical of undoubted interest that emanates.
Don’t forget that, from a tourist point of view, from Santiago del Teide there are numerous paths that, from the town, invite oxygenating walks through the woods and that the small and very pretty town center is welcoming, always joyfully frequented and rich in commercial services among the which couldn’t miss, numerous taperies, original and characteristic bars and restaurants that offer interesting menus of local cuisine, often nicely decorated and pleasantly decorated.
It goes without saying that only mentioning the geographical location of Santiago del Teide evokes strenuous but very frequent bicycle climbs that form, along its hairpin bends, a multicolored army of cyclists from the most disparate countries of the world with their “means” in tow.
